Directed by former CIA officer Michael Sellers, Vlad chronicles the far-reaching consequences of a professor's (Child's Play veteran Brad Dourif) request that his students visit the tomb of the infamous Vlad Drakul (aka Vlad the Impaler). Known as one of the cruelest figures in world history, Drakul's reputation for dismembering his victims ultimately led to the belief that he himself may have been a vampire -- he was, in fact, the inspiration for Bram Stoker's Dracula. With this in mind, four foreign-exchange students, along with their Romanian tour guide (Billy Zane), venture into the bowels of Drakul's final resting place. When the students come into contact with a legendary necklace, they realize that its rumored ability to traverse throughout time and space is no myth. Vlad features performances from Kam Heskin, Monica Davidescu, Nicholas Irons, and Paul Popowich. ~ Tracie Cooper

This is totally different than most Dracula movies, will disappoint the 17 year old looking for blood and impalings. However the artistry is excellent, the music and cinematography outstanding for a low-budget film, and the story line works. I agree with the reviewer who used the term 'horror with a brain.' Should do well on colleges...this year's best Halloween season movie.

For a modern Dracula movie, this one isn’t bad. The only bad thing is that it barrows and copies from many other Dracula stories and movies, including Subspecies and Bram Stoker’s Dracula to name a couple. Over all, the movie isn’t bad. The special effects are decent and the story, is once again, average. The acting is good in places, but two of the best actors, and the one’s I watched the movie hoping to see – Brad Douriff and Billy Zane – were barely in the movie at all. I was disappointed. There wasn’t anything that stood out for me about this film, other than the fact that Billy Zane is still charming as ever. Other than that, the plot is full of holes, the ending is silly, the story is predictable. I also had objections to a rape scene in the movie. There are good parts. Some of the costumes are nice, and some of the acting was decent. I would recommend this only to fans of B movies, people who need an all too brief Billy Zane fix, or Dracula completist fans. I would not recommend it to someone just looking for a good horror movie.
